What our

Clients Say

Earlier this year Leah Anderson and Associates assisted us with moving our Home Loan and Investment Property Loan to another financial institution. The process was so easy, we live in Qld but this was no issue for Leah. Everything ran very smoothly, it was great to leave talking to the banks in Leah's capable hands. Leah and Kim were very efficient and nothing was a problem for them. We felt very comfortable calling them with any questions we had. The best part was that Leah was able to secure us a much better rate than we could have gotten ourselves. We would definitely recommend Leah Anderson and Associates to anyone looking to buy, invest or refinance. Rebecca & Haydon, Qld.

To quote the words of the great Darryl Kerrigan “It’s a home, not a house. A man’s home is his castle.” Having been to talk with the banks and other brokers who said our situation was “too difficult.”, “Too this or too that” we had just about given up hope of ever buying our castle. That was until we met with Leah and her team. Leah knew as well as we did that we could afford the dream of home ownership. She took our situation and fought for our dream! We can now proudly say that we own our “Castle”. I can not recommend Leah and her team enough!!

We highly recommend Leah. She has been absolutely fantastic in securing two mortgages for us. The first one, when no one else could get us a loan! She answers any correspondence so efficiently and we cannot thank her and her team enough for the support, kindness and efficiency - not to mention the great repayment rates! Many thanks Leah and team for all you've done to help make our dreams possible!

Leah Anderson I cannot recommend you highly enough! You proved to be one of the most patient, ethical, knowledgeable professionals I have had the pure privilege of dealing with. Purchasing property can be very stressful, yet you went above and beyond to ensure the process was as stress free as possible. I would personally like to thank you for your consistent reassurance and hard work throughout the process and ultimately enabling my dreams to come true. Thank you.

Without doubt, Leah is the best in the business. She is honest, reliable, hardworking and extremely knowledgeable. After working with Leah, I would not trust my or my family's financial future with anyone else. 5 stars doesn't seem fair, as I cannot recommend her highly enough You would be crazy to even contemplate using anyone else

Leah was amazing. I am a real estate agent where a home buyer had their application for finance turned down twice before I suggested talking to Leah. Where other couldn’t Leah could. She went above and beyond and the young couple are now happy in their first home.
